Nashville, Tenn. – Throughout his expansive career, international country music icon Lee Greenwood has earned multiple CMA and ACM Awards, a Grammy Award for Top Male Vocal Performance on “I.O.U,” in 1985, and a multitude of other prestigious award nominations. Now, in 2020, as Greenwood has announced and celebrates his ‘Hits Tour presented by ABC Supply Company,’ his music will be spotlighted during a one-hour performance special airing on SiriusXM’s Prime Country channel 58 starting this Friday, February 28.
“I am really excited about this radio special,” says Lee Greenwood. “Storme Warren and I sat around in the SiriusXM Nashville theater and chatted about so many topics, but the real fun was performing nine of my Top 10 singles. Storme requested songs like I.O.U., It Turns Me Inside Out, Holdin’ A Good Hand, Ring On Her Finger and a few others so I hope people will tune in to hear this show.”
The Lee Greenwood Prime Country special will air during the following times:
Feb. 28: noon (12p), 6pm, and 9pm
Feb 29: 4 pm and 11pm
March 1: 6pm
March 3: 3am
*All airtimes are in Eastern Time Zone
His discography includes twenty-two studio albums, seven compilation albums, seven No. 1 hits and thirty-eight singles including songs like “She’s Lyin’,” “I Don’t Mind the Thorns if You’re the Rose,” “Dixie Road,” “Somebody’s Gonna Love You,” “Going Going Gone,” “You Got A Good Love Comin’,” among others.
His stand-out hit “God Bless the U.S.A.” has been in the top five on the country singles charts three times (1991, 2001 and 2003), giving it the distinction of being the only song in any genre of music to achieve that feat. It reached the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart shortly after 9/11. Known for his stand-out patriotism and support of the U.S. Military, Greenwood has been honored with the Congressional Medal of Honor Society’s National Patriot’s Award, and entertained troops on more than 30 USO Tours.
Greenwood was appointed to the council of the National Endowment for the Arts in 2008 by President George W. Bush, confirmed by the United States Senate, and continues to serve on the NEA at the pleasure of the President. His latest book release is a children’s book called Proud To Be An American, which is currently available in stores, on Amazon and leegreenwood.com.
